"As Jurmain points out in her thoroughly documented biographical thriller, it was a dangerous ride....The train ride that brought Lincoln home in 1865 has received more attention, but readers may find this one just as memorable."--Booklist

In February 1861, Abraham Lincoln set out on a triumphant 2,000 mile cross-country railroad trip that would take him from his home in Springfield, Illinois, to his Presidential inauguration in Washington, D.C. But danger was around the bend, as a band of fanatic southern Confederate sympathizers were desperate for Lincoln to die. Furious at the new president's desire to end slavery, they devised a plan. Lincoln would be murdered by an assassin's bullet in Baltimore. As rushing railway trains carried Abraham Lincoln towards disaster, Detective Allan Pinkerton sniffed out the plot-and he and his detective assistants hatched a daring plan of their own.

Dive into this incredibly fun and suspenseful true story and learn about Lincoln's great escape!
